Real Estate Market Update for Fort Myers, FL
Welcome to March's Market Update,. Let’s take a look at residential real-estate activity in your area during the month of March. The number of active listings was down 29% from one year earlier, and did not change from the previous month. These latest figures mean that buyers had a more limited selection of homes to choose from compared to the same month the previous year. As you can see, the median listing price for the month was 70-thousand dollars. Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold was up more than 125%. This higher number of days may signal a slowdown in the local inventory-turnover rate. The median sale price was just under 40-thousand dollars. The number of units sold decreased 75% year-over-year, and held steady month-over-month. Even though sales figures were down from a year ago, the recent local market conditions were basically unchanged. Thanks for watching. We hope you use this information to make smart, informed decisions in your upcoming real-estate transactions. Feel free to contact us for more information or further assistance.
